Kyabram Bowls Club’s team of David Cartwright, Greg Shilling, Russell Locke and Darren Boswood are through to the Victorian state championships.

They won the Central Goulburn Murray Regional Fours final at Alexandra on Sunday, defeating the home side on its own rink 21-13.

Kyabram had defeated Cobram in the morning’s semi-final with an impressive 20-8 scoreline.

In windy conditions, the Kyabram team held its nerve to maintain its attack on the head, consistently drawing more bowls close to the head than its opponent in the closing ends.

Skipper Cartwright said he was rapt with advancing to the state tournament.

‘‘We were down and instead of dropping the bundle, we all tried a little bit harder,’’ he said. ‘‘It’s even better when you bowl with blokes you enjoy bowling with.’’

The Kyabram team will represent Central Goulburn Murray Region at the state championships at Bendigo in April.
